Heel pain is most likely due to plantar fascitis.The treatment mostly is conservative and lifestyle modifications to achieve maximum functionality with minimum pain. Follow these lifestyle changes religiously to get benefit. 1. Reduce body weight as obesity will aggravate the stress on heel. 2. Avoid exercises like running / walking on hard surfaces. Stop such activities when you start developing pain. 3. Roll your feet on bottle of cold water for 20 mins 4 times a day or can apply ice pack. 4. Use shoes with silicone sole inserts. 5. Do calf muscle and heel stretches daily. 6. Avoid prolonged standing or sitting. 7. Use night splint to keep foot flexed at night. Stop using it once pain is relieved. 8. Use analgesics like Ibuprofen for decreasing pain and inflammation. With proper lifestyle changes as above 90 % patients have relief and functionality. Only 10% patients would require surgical intervention like plantar fascia release or gastrocnemius recession. For further queries consult again.

While sleeping have a pillow under your knee that will reduce your pain, have a good back support when you sit on a chair, do not sit for longer duration, check height and weight if your weight is not ideal to your weight plan for proper weight loss programme and once pain is relieved you have to do back strengthening exercises.

Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do streching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief consult physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.

I have a pain in my shoulders. Sometime my neck is not moving and chakar b aate h.
As your age is not mentioned, you neck and shoulder pain can be due to Mechanical neck pain or due to Spondylosis which happens usually after 35 years. Chakkar Jo aate hain Woh unke wajah se bhi hosakta hai ya fir less water intake ki wajah se bhi hosakta hai, low sugar (Hypoglycemia) k wajah se bhi, Low haemoglobin k wajah se bhi chakkar aasakta hai. Ear mein kuch Problem hote Jaise BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) Jo ki Exercise se bilkul theek hojaata hain. Sodium Potassium fall karne se bhi chakkar aate hai aur pain hota hai. Drink plenty of water in a day on an average of 3.5-4 litres. Aapke Problem k kaafi wajah hosakte hain Jo simple hi hote hai aksar patients mein Jo ki Healthy life style and Healthy Diet and Therapeutic Exercise se bilkul theek hojaate hain. Get consulted by a good Orthopedic Physiotherapist for determining the best way to get the diagnosis and treatment. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, it seems you have pain at jaw & neck. I'd advise you to proceed ahead in this manner. First comsult a cardiologist to rule out any cardiac issue (i know you have done 2d echo, but sometime there is transient vasospastic angina which can give rise to such pain & echo can still be normal. Best way to rule out any cardiac pathology is to get dobutamine stress echo done, which will show any positive cardiac issue, which is missed in standard echo or even angiography). Once you have ruled out cardiac pathology then your pain could be due to cervical nerves (facet median branch or even disc herniation at lower cervical spine mainly c7/t1 nerves) or some other neural problem such as atypical facial/non facial neuralgia, which can only be confirmed on clinical examination, proper history & radiological investigation. For same you visit interventional pain specialist for proper diagnosis & further treatment. Hope it helps your query.

Hi lybrate-user Spine pain is very cruciating so we always feel disturbed throughout the day. You can send MRI reports to me so that I can have complete picture of your spine. Ayurveda and Panchakarma helps a lot in such cases. Back muscle strengthening is important to distribute the load over spine. Few Yogasanas are very helpful in relieving the low back pain immediately. Thanks.

According to me it is mostly postural pain. Try adjusting your posture. Avoid long drives and bike rides. Get an mri total spine if possible. But it is slightly expensive .if not get an x Ray total spine and consult.

Requires detail examination and investigation presently investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d xray of the affected part. Anyway you may try-sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.

Suffering from acute knee pain and pain in waist, painkiller will temporarily sooth, can you suggest permanent cure?

Suffering from acute knee pain and pain in waist, painkiller will temporarily sooth, can you suggest permanent cure?
Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury or some other medical conditions including arthritis, patellar tendinitis, acl injury, knee bursitis, torn meniscus, gout and infections. Try some home remedies for your pain- - ice is useful for the control of pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the level of the heart while icing. -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport here are some tips for how to handle your back /waist pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --while sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -some physiotherapy treatment like ift current can give you some relief. -a physical therapist can tell you when to begin stretching and strengthening exercises and how to do them. You need detail assessment with a physiotherapist to find out what causing you these pain and pain management. Best wishes.

I am 20 years old. I got a backpain from last 3-4 months. What precautions should I take?
Hi, preventive measures for backache include: 1) maintain a healthy weight. 2) keep your sitting posture correct/straight. Do not slouch 3) avoid bending from back while lifting something from ground, instead bend at your knees. 4) hot fomentation to lower back or the painful part. 5) keep the coir side of your mattress up to give your back firm support and change the mattress if it is curved. 6) wear comfortable footwear with shock absorbing soles in shoes. In case above measures do not help, take rhus. Tox-30, 2 drops in 1 tsp water thrice a day for a week and revert back: now-a-days most backaches are due to vitamin d deficiency. Sit in sun and expose the long bones and back to sunrays. Also drink 2 glasses of milk daily.
